This was an adequate recipe for muffins. I'm not sure that the final outcome is quite worth all of the steps. I spent at least half an hour on just prep. I'll might use the struesel topping on a different muffin.

  3. STREUSEL: In a small bowl, stir together the flour, almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

  9. Do not overmix.
  10. Divide a little less than 1/2 the batter amongst the prepared muffin cups, spreading to cover bottoms.
